Ricky from KS drew the winning ticket and it was Sam’s… hmmmmmm. It gets even more suspicious as Sam drew the Joker! After much ribbing, we have to agree that he is a lucky, and deserving, winner of $660.
Happy Bucks
Sam, happy from his recent winning, was drafted for Happy Bucks. Despite Sam winning the 50/50, the rest of us seemed rather happy too.
Carlo Barille Classification Talk
Carlo said he decided he wanted a life of travel and adventure, and he did just that. After growing up in Italy and studying hospitality in Lausanne, Switzerland, he came to Canada. He proved himself quite a salesman making good money selling Grolier encyclopedias, and then concentrated on a career in the hospitality sector. Over a long and impressive career in food and beverage and hotel management, Carlo worked in several Ontario cities (he joined Rotary when in Belleville – the club met at his hotel!), Aruba, and Cancun. Earning people’s respect and moving up the ladder with his travels. He even owned La Pergola Italian restaurant in Gatineau for 10 years.
It was great to get to know Carlo better. He’s retired now, so we can benefit from his experience and fellowship.
President Joan ended the meeting promptly at 1:30pm.
